reversible or not?

A pot is half-filled with water, and a lid is placed on it, forming a tight seal so that no water vapor can escape. The pot is heated on a stove, forming water vapor inside the pot. The heat is then turned off and the water vapor condenses back to liquid. Is this cycle reversible or irreversible? Why?

By reversible, if you mean that on heating it again, will the entire process repeat itself, then yes, of course it will as heating of water is a physical change, not a chemical one. Is this what you were asking?
